Cyberterror Knows No Boundaries…

Murder and mayhem continue for private investigator and computer consultant Wolf Ruger, Iraq war vet with PTSD. A trail of bodies leads him deeper into the nefarious international group plotting

incident. Meanwhile, he struggles to maintain steamy relationships with Vanessa
and Ann, who each desire a no-strings-attached arrangement.
